Looking for a sports bar to watch MSU football? Start with these six

There’s a certain energy in Reno’s East on days when the Michigan State University Spartans play football, says Jessie Stipcak.

Fans react to an MSU score during the first half of the Michigan State Spartans Final Four game against Texas Tech on Saturday April 6, 2019 at Reno's East in East Lansing.

Stipcak, who now owns the Abbot Road sports bar, was a student at MSU when she started working there as a waitress in 1996, and the energy of an MSU Football Saturday has been the same every fall since.

A large number of Michigan State fans in a bar means “a lot of energy,” she said. “They are very much alive.”

Therein lies the appeal of local sports bars on MSU game days, depending on who owns or works there.

If you don’t look from inside the Spartan Stadium in the first home game on September 2, the good sports bar offers food, drinks and a good seat in a communal environment.
